Sounding like an angry mix of The Jam and Elvis Costello and The Attractions - Fred Perry Subculture

Cross Wires music is filled with a rebellious attitudeand will want to make you jump around to it! looking to make some endorphins? Great, Pink Dogs will be a perfect aural companion - Fresh On The Net

It's punk with intelligence as well as attitude, it's post punk that hasn't forgotten its snotty roots, it's Indie from the wrong side of the tracks. It's great - Dancing About Architecture

Cross Wires make pounding, highly melodic alternative rock that makes you want to punch the air like someone possessed by the spirt of Steve Albini - Spoonfeed

Pink Dogs is a gargantuan track. The bass line Editors - esque, the crushing guitars have a Television vibe and the precision work and ferocity resonate Eagulls - The Revue

We Call The Shots is the new flaming blitzkrieg single injected with a razor- sharp seventies punk intensity - Turn Up The Volume
